Join Michael Compton as he examines the present and future of ‘Big AI’ in this, the 2nd part of our 2-part series. This series delves into the seemingly rapid rise of new deep learning AI models with unprecedented parallel computing power, massive datasets, and deep corporate investment. Combined, these huge trends are poised to have a transformative impact on all of society!

In the 1st talk on Wed 3/22/23, Michael looked at the underlying technology, as well as the infrastructure, behind the Big Tech language models and he discussed the opportunities and challenges in integrating this technology into your business. He examined the sudden rise of transformers (Wikipedia definition) and their impressive capability to engage in complex human-like conversation. While this is a fundamental revolution in itself, transformers are not just limited to language but have the ability to disrupt almost every corner of our economy in only a few years.

In this 2nd talk on Wed 4/5/23, we will look at the arrival of multimodal AI. Beginning with the new “AI Art” generators, we will then look at even more advanced multimodal AIs that can “think” across diverse forms of data, such as vision, audio, olfactory, chemistry, code, text, images, and many others.

This 2-part series concludes by considering whether multimodal AI is a key stepping stone towards achieving an Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) that can perform any task that a human can, across a wide range of domains, with or without supervision.

Even if you missed the 1st talk in this series, you should still plan to came to this 2nd one. You will not feel lost and you’ll gain many important insights!
